Diggs, Rhodes Return After Message from Zimmer

EAGAN, Minn. — The message was simple and effective.

As talented as players can be, the team will always matter more.

Vikings Head Coach Mike Zimmer withheld Stefon Diggs and Xavier Rhodes from practice Wednesday after the receiver and cornerback let their competitive fires cause them to bubble up at each other.

The day before, Diggs had caught a deep pass for a touchdown against Rhodes and threw the ball into the stands in celebration. Rhodes wanted another rep, but instead the pair had some verbal exchanges that continued into Wednesday. Both players were back at the walk-through session Thursday.
